Sponsor SeaShorts2019 Film Festival

Update posted by Chui Mui Tan On May 26, 2019

SEASHORTS Film Festival started with a naive idea: to provide a platform that features short films from Southeast Asia and highlights Southeast Asian cultures on a big screen. The experience of watching our neighbors' works inspired us and we thought that Southeast Asia produced outstanding short films too.


With the support from Japan Foundation, the festival was able to fly filmmakers and festival programmers to Malaysia to attend the festival and watch a hundred of short films from Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and the Philippines.

The audience who attended the festival got along easily and the festival became so important to us because we hope that the spirit of celebrating short films will last. We weren't sure how did the festival develop into something so intimate. Maybe it was for the willingness to share, for the sense of togetherness, for the love for films, for cinema.

However, organizing a film festival incurs cost. The greatest challenge we faced in SeaShorts 2017 & 2018 was to raise enough budget to reimburse every single team member. Last year we had to cover the overhead on our own, which is not feasible in a long run.


SEASHORTS is a unique film festival that showcases diverse bodies of short films emerging from Southeast Asia region. Your support will help us to discover young talented filmmakers in the region and bring their works to light.
